Happy holidays, all!
We’ve got 474 tubs of cookie dough arriving to the F-Block Civil loading docks Schulich School of Engineering around 9:30am on Wednesday December 7th. This also translates to over $2,100 raised to help fund our team! Thanks to all those who helped out!
The dock is vehicle accessible via Lot 13 (Collegiate Blvd NW, just west of the Nickle Arts/MacHall loop).
GNCTR staffers will be ther ine the morning sorting all the dough and make sure it gets to the right people. GNCTR People: You MUST pick up your dough and original order form by 4:00pm on Wednesday!
There will also be a few extra tubs available on hand that day for direct purchase…so if you somehow missed our drive, this will be your last chance to get your hands on a tub of dough…don’t pass this chance up!
